Description:

Velebit House is spread over four floors and covers a number of thematic ensembles intertwined and interspersed with each other so that the richness of Velebit, its diversity and cultural and natural value can be better displayed. In Velebit House you will meet a large part of this diversity - various insects and birds, large beasts, endemic plant species adapted to extreme living conditions... But the value of this mountain is not only in the number of plant, animal and fungal species, but also in the diversity if its landscape. The reason for this is the many superficial karstic forms - sinkholes, ridges, crags, limestone pavements... to name just a few. But the story of how they came to be is told in Velebit House!

And what is actually most valuable is in the underworld and is inaccessible to most visitors. These are our deep caves inhabited by a whole unique world of specific fauna that have had to adapt to a life in a constant darkness. Once again, humanity is intrigued by the underworld, and has begun to explore the fascinating dark world which constantly surprises us by the newly discovered animal species.
